Ghostwalk by Rebecca Stott
Ghostwalk begins with a Cambridge historian found drowned with a glass prism clutched in one hand. She had been studying Isaac Newton, his exploration of alchemy despite his scientific accomplishments, and unsolved murders that were committed during this time. Her son, neuroscientist Cameron Brown, asks his ex-lover, Lydia Brooke, to ghostwrite the final chapters of his mother's biography of Newton. She moves into his mother's cabin and starts digging through the research, and eerie events begin to unfold that mirror events of several centuries earlier. Cameron's lab is threatened by an animal rights group, and the line that separates the centuries begins to blur. Rebecca Stott's debut novel has received positive reviews with the Washington Post saying, "By the final chapter, Stott's elegant subtlety has been transmuted into a violent swirl of reversals and revelations that would defy Newton's calculus. You can't help but feel swept away."
